Help Needed in EVA4100 Setup

Hello!

Just received a EVA4100 Starter Kit (not SAN Starter Kit) and 2 HP Storageworks 4/8 SAN Switch. I have given both switches an IP, but didn't realize that we need FC Cards (till now) for a Windows PC that will run CommandView. Can you use any FC cards that support 2GB or 4GB, or does it have to be a particular card.

And any other setup help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Emil

The HBAs need to be qualified by HP Support to have a supported configuration.
Download and take a long look at the SAN Design Guide (HP StorageWorks SAN design reference guide) at http://hp.com/go/sandesignguide .

Hello!

I am looking for a list of supported FC HBA's that the management server (running CommandView) can have.

This used to be documented in the compatibility references, but it is no longer.

Looks like you can use any supported adapter/driver combination. This is documented in the Windows connectivity release notes:

HP StorageWorks 4x00/6x00/8x00 Enterprise Virtual Array Connectivity 6.1B for Windows Release Notes (5697-6762, June 2007)

Right now, this link works:
